Classic ladies shower for my BFF.
Do I put both “Suzy and Johnny” on the card? It’s for both of them (obvs) but only she’s there?
Do I include DH’s name? He won’t be there either?
How do you usually do it?

For a bridal shower gift and it’s not a coed shower, it’s from me (female) to recipient (female). The males are not included. We also give a wedding gift, on top of the shower gift, and that one is from us (male and female) to them (male and female).

for a bridal shower for women then just the brides name.

That’s what I was thinking, thanks! I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing something. ; )

I put them both on…. because I think it’s silly that women get “two” gift giving occasions for weddings and men don’t, when the stuff is for both of them. Personal opinion!

I received cards with both, and others with just my name. Similarly, I received shower cards signed just by the ladies, or others with the ladies and their men.
If a card was addressed to FH and I, I signed the thank-you with both our names. If the card was signed from the woman and her man, I addressed the thank-you to both of them.
I think though really, “traditionallly,” ladies-only shower cards should be addressed just to the bride. That said, I don’t think it’s a breach to address the groom as well.

Who cares? Do you think someone is going to be offended getting a shower gift with a card from the both of you rather than just the woman? It’s 2013, not 1953!
